An Atlanta native, LaQundra was raised in the Pittsburgh community and is proud to become the first person in her family to buy a home. When LaQundra is not working for Ram Partners LLC., she enjoys time with her two daughters, Yasmine (15 years old) and Brooke (9 years old). Yasmine dreams of owning a salon one day, and Brooke wants to become a classroom teacher/dance instructor. LaQundra and her family share their gratitude for the house sponsors helping make her first home affordable.
Sharneka– like all Atlanta Habitat homebuyers – will purchase her house with a no-interest loan. Homebuyers make a down payment of $800, pay a monthly mortgage, complete 250 sweat-equity hours, attend 12 homeowner-education classes, and participate in five financial coaching sessions. Monthly mortgage payments are around $650 and include escrow for taxes, insurance, sanitation fees, a termite bond, and a maintenance savings fund.
Our next building project begins Saturday, October 16, 2021, and continues through Saturday, December 11, 2021. Volunteer to work a Saturday on the build site! Feel free to invite family and friends to participate on the build as well. Each person must register online individually. The minimum volunteer age is 16-years-old.
